RFK Bridge reopens after state trooper was struck in traffic stop Sunday

The RFK Bridge has reopened following the investigation of a state trooper that was struck Sunday.
The driver, a 21-year-old man, hit the state trooper with his car during a traffic stop on the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge right before 1 p.m. The NYPD stopped a stolen car on the Manhattan span of the bridge, and state troopers stepped in to help, which was when the driver took off and hit a second car before hitting the state trooper, according to New York State Police. The state trooper fired a shot at the car while trying to stop it.
The state trooper was taken to Elmhurst Hospital for a minor leg injury, and was released from the hospital. News 12 was told that an MTA officer was also treated for an injury.
Both the 21-year-old driver and the 17-year-old passenger were arrested and have multiple charges pending against them.
